10 Things

Today: ten quick little things that bring me joy...again in no particular order.

  1. The smell of onions as they saute in butter.
  2. The kiss of moisture in the air after a rain. (A treat in Arizona, let me tell you!)
  3. The sound of giggling around the neighborhood. We live in the middle of a whole gaggle of little girls.
  4. That first sip of good coffee in the morning: the way it smells, the warm cup in my hand...and of course, the caffeine!
  5. Watching my silly puppy chasing lizards.
  6. That time at the end of day when the trees are black silhouettes against a cobalt sky. Gorgeous.
  7. A good review.
  8. My Sweet Hubs, just going about his day (which is always full of projects): Confident, capable...yum.
  9. When someone tells me, "You crack me up".
  10. My kitchen garden: it's a never-ending showcase of life, growth, satisfaction and flavor. All we need to be happy.
There are so many more. Too many to list, so I may have to revisit this in a later post!


10 Things

Ten quick little things that drive me a little crazy, in no particular order:

  1. People who take themselves too seriously.
  2. People who send scan and email documents upside-down. Don't make me rotate.
  3. People who write "would of" instead of "would have".
  4. Spoiled. Spoiled dogs, spoiled children, spoiled milk. I dislike spoiled.
  5. Extreme people. I don't care if they are extremely drunk, extremely hoochie, extremely churchy or extremely anything else. Find some balance, people! Even extremely nice is too much. If you don't have any bitchiness in you, it just isn't healthy. Embrace your snark.
  6. People who park right in front of the store doors (in the DRIVING LANE) because they're "just running in". 
  7. Blaming. Blaming your rotten childhood for your current unhappiness, blaming your inexperience for being stupid, blaming your age for being unwilling to learn, blaming everybody for everything and never blaming yourself for anything.
  8. Litter bugs. Jerks who leave their campsite a disaster, or the dirty diaper in the parking lot or their trash blowing out of their disgustingly dirty car. Pick up after yourself.
  9. Quit changing things! Blogger and ebay and almost every website I frequent keeps changing their sites. Stop it! I just had everything memorized. The changes to blogger suck, too. Boo on you, google. 
  10. Squirrels. Creepy little stinkers. Eewwww.

Next time.... ten quick little things that bring me joy. 



The headline reads, "Octomom's First Porn Shoot Had WHAT?"

I admit, I'm curious. But I refuse to click on that story on principle. I refuse to add my 'click' to the millions of hits that sad, sick, deranged woman generates.

But I'm still curious.


What I See--Alita

Oh, Alita! What can I say? We've known eachother for so many years! Alita and I became acquainted first because our husbands worked to...
